    what to do with used Muratic Acid?

    Is it OK to just dump it down the drain and run some water?
    I used it to acid bath the filter fingers.

    If your drain contains metal pipes you need to dilute it a whole lot before pouring it in the drain. In fact I would pour a very thin stream down the drain as I ran water after I diluted it.

    I believe I would pour it in the ground away from valuable plants or will quickly neutralize.
